Today, a LoRaWAN based temperature and humidity monitoring solution can prevent food and medicine contamination.

LoRaWAN-based wireless temperature and humidity monitoring system for food and medicine safety.

As per the World Health Organisation (WHO), Food can become contaminated at any point during slaughtering, harvesting, processing, storage, distribution, transportation and preparation. It is essential to monitor food and medicine to avoid food-borne diseases and drugs side effects. As per the food safety system, apart from personal hygiene, proper sanitation and good manufacturing habits we also need to cook food at a safe temperature and keep food warm or refrigerate it promptly if necessary. There are three types of food and Medicine storage: dry, refrigerated and frozen. Therefore, both temperature and humidity play a major role in their storage system.

Some of the important medicines, vaccines and blood must be preserved in proper aspects. In the food sector, maintaining the right temperature and humidity is also of paramount importance and can otherwise lead to an unexpected increase in the price of vegetables during the time of crises. As per the WHO, Increase in the world's population creates demand for both food opportunities and safety. Temperature and climate changes are also predicted to impact on food safety risk in storage and distribution. If any accidental power failure or unsuspectingly increase in temperature will lead to a loss in its distinctiveness. However, the current facility fails to uninterruptedly monitor, record and alert the concerned person in case of changes of temperature or humidity.
